  1. Count your blessings the Hallmark Christmas Channel is unavailable in Philippines. ☠️
  2. As a typical American Football fan I’ve got to share my respect for rugby 🏉.
  3. I like SM Pilsen too. Never tried Gold Eagle will give it a try next visit.

    Easy, Gamepass NFL.
  5. Yes you are absolutely correct Dave. I was thinking Filipino family member should have made this clear.
  6. I used this product after speaking with an auto service mechanic friend. If you follow the directions it works well. for several hundred USD the equipment to properly test and service simple auto aircon issues can be had. Perhaps a good small business for someone.
  7. I know a place in Cebu City that stocks safety blades both Feather and Polsilver

    I agree with Dave. With some exceptions much of Filipino food is unremarkable or worse. I know firsthand Metro Cebu City has a few dozen of outstanding restaurants featuring high quality non Filipino cuisine. Due to chronic gridlock many places even a short distance can take an hour or more to get to.
  9. My thoughts exactly. Except not maddening just different than I am used to.
  10. Marvin you do sound cynical and unhappy about how things are in Philippines. Do you think over time you’re going to adjust and learn to accept that you can’t change others behavior or will it eat you up? I am asking respectfully and appreciate your honesty in what you’ve shared. In the past we have had forum members who hated living as an Expatriate in Philippines nothing wrong with that it’s their reality. Not criticizing you just curious.
  11. I didn't mean to put you on the spot and appreciate your comments. At age 65 I am signed up for Medicare but am still working. I've been studying add-on plans that would cover visiting or living in Philippines.
  12. Thank you for that. What supplemental policies should one be looking for to cover or help cover living or visiting Philippines?
  13. Good to hear you recovered fully and did not ruin your visit. Without sharing personal information I would be curious to learn how Medicare deals with those bills.
  14. Thanks for sharing. Something I want to learn more about. https://www.alivecor.com/kardiamobile/
  15. Well Heeb is from Spokane…. so there's that.
  16. I think you did great. The suggestion was because you are good at detailing topics.
  17. No problem sir well done!
  18. Sorry Don. Like usual my post is unintelligible and my math is wrong. Ballast Point Sculpin IPA my favorite is $10.00 a six pack. ~500 pesos. I don’t often have time for a beer no clue what Bud or Coors lite is now.
  19. A high quality craft IPA here in Washington State is 150 pesos each per six pack or 250 poured in a tavern. SM Pilsen here is ~50-100 Pesos each per six pack. What are bottles of 18 year Tanduay rum going for now?
  20. Tommy, you brought up a great point. Could you please start a new topic something like home medical care equipment? Blood pressure gage and what ever else others have found useful? Even could include emergency OTC medicine?
  21. So Dave - Jack.... writing “License” on a one thousand Peso bill isn’t going to fly now? Asking for a friend 🤔
  22. Glad you feel better now for sure what you experienced must have been frightening. We all know Philippines lacks effective EMS services and dependable medical emergency care. It’s a risk all Expats live or die with.
